Gaza, ALRAY - General Coordinator of the Popular Movement for the Prisoners and Palestinian Rights, Nash’at Al-Wahidi said that the prisoners' families and their wives in particular became afraid of Israel racist policies against them at Israel military checkpoints.
Al-Wahidi added that Palestinian families were barred from visiting their sons unless they underwent strip searches at the military checkpoints under false Pretenses.
" Israeli soldiers deliberately use such offensive methods seeking more insulting for the prisoners and their families." Al-Wahidi said.
The mother of two prisoners Mohammad and Diya' Agha said " security of the occupation is not more expensive than our dignity."
She also called on local and international human rights organizations to pressure the Israeli authorities to end the policy of strip searches and to stop Israel's illegal practices against them.
